Screen legend Fred Astaire is an Irish rogue whose leprechaun comes to life in the American South. A whimsical, musical fantasy directed by mastermind Francis Ford Coppola ("Bram Stoker's Dracula," "The Godfather") and co-starring pop star/actress Petula Clark ("Goodbye, Mr. Chips"), this story is pure enchantment. Leonard Maltin calls this "elegant and witty... the best movie musical of its era."

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A light, pastoral fantasy with civil rights angles, underscored by comedy values.
Fresh: A marvelous evening right up to its last shot of Astaire walking away down a country road.
Rotten: It's Fred Astaire's last musical and a sorry farewell.
An awkward gem.
There are some things that just aren't right about this movie, but it rises above the "dated" look and some poor casting to still be a delight to watch. The music is gorgeous, the story line is quirky, and then there is Fred Astaire, Petula Clark and Tommy Sands pulling this movie from a disaster to a higher level. Very enjoyalbe despite its flaws.
The movie file is corrupt
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MOVIE UNTIL THE SOUND TRACK IS SYNCED WITH THE VIDEO. I purchased this movie in 2009 and went to watch on Apple TV a couple of weeks ago, the video and sound track are not synced, they are way, way, way out of sync. The movie is unwatchable. I have spent hours over the past 10 days trying to get this issue addressed by Apple via email and phone calls. I downloaded the file through iTunes and it is also corrupt. Today I was on the phone with Apple for over 75 minutes and all they did was let me redownload the same corrupt file to my computer again. WORST CUSTOMER SUPPORT ON THE PLANET. Then they went to transfer me to someone higher up the chain and they dropped the call after 75 minutes on the phone. Please note this problem was also identified back on September 12, 2014 by another user, Alan135, two and a half months ago. Very, very disappointed with Apple. No excuse for this.
Great Movie to Watch for St. Patrick
I watch this movie every year as part of my birthday celebration. Great music and dancing. Very funny! Best classical movie for the Luck of the Irish!
